#PremierLeagueStories – #PepGuardiola talks about the qualities he looks out for when signing a player #MCFC

Manchester City rarely have trouble coming up with the funds for any given transfer target, but that doesn’t mean just anyone is acceptable. Quite aside from the technical traits a player has, Pep Guardiola has one other key requirement he always searches for. The Spanish coach was speaking with Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli in an interview and spoke about what he looks into a player when signing him and playing without fans.

Pep Guardiola said “I would say we see the skills [first] but we should see more the character, The character absolutely makes the difference, being a competitor and hungry and especially in the bad moments, forget immediately the bad action and think positively about the next one. When you are able to find this as much as possible in the squad it is a winning team because skills don’t handle pressure or ambition. Until you buy them, until you are with them it is difficult to know it. At the end it is how you handle the pressure. It is like a friendly game every time. It is not the same. We have to do it because the show must go on and there is a lot of money involved, People can enjoy it on TV of course but we need the people to come back. You feel empty. The bad moments are less bad and the good moments are less good. In sport [normally], in the nice moments your adrenaline is high and top and in the bad moments you are depressed because you lose.”
